Steve,
 GM keys are issued per url _and_ directory (unfortunately). If the key is 
for www.findu.com <http://www.findu.com> then 
http://www.findu.com/cgi-bin/find1.cgi?call=K4HG
won't work since it references the "cgi-bin" directory. One of the Google 
developers did say that they are working on a different key scheme...
